A 29-year-old man suspected of possessing counterfeit bills and fentanyl was taken into custody in Cabazon, authorities said Saturday.

Deputies from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department’s Cabazon station responded to a call in the 49000 block of Seminole Drive on Thursday night about a person suspected of passing counterfeit bills. The suspect fled the scene in a blue Mazda, according to the department.
